Abstract:

"More and more personal relationships are being formed at work. In fact 60 per cent of people of differing status and earning capacity ranging from chairmen, to policemen, to secretary admit to one or more intimate relationships in the workplace. With greater time spent at work and increasing intensity of teamwork, organisations are now serving multiple interests, from professional to distinctly personal and intimate. The greater majority of those involved in intimate encounters are pleasant, hard working, positive contributors to the continued success of their teams, departments and whole enterprise. But can their managers cope?

This book clearly highlights that organisations are found wanting in not having instituted policies and practices to equitably address this emerging phenomenon. As a result, many of those involved in intimate workplace relations report themselves as defensive and dissatisfied with their organisation and their bosses, particularly as they feel they have conducted themselves professionally and with propriety. Thus, through better understanding of intimacy in the workplace, firm guidance for managers is offered to better prepare them to effectively address such sensitive encounters and still maintain positive and motivating relationships with their peers and subordinates."--Jacket.
